Additionally and entirely unrelated to performance but might be causing
the visual artefacts you mentioned...

For now you also need to ensure that your three groups also all have
'showFocusBorder' set to false - this is due to bug 22322, a fix for
which is pending (

[ ShowFocusBorder has absolutely no effect on groups, however it causes
a miscalculation to occur when rendering in certain circumstances when
it is enabled and acceleratedRendering is on ].
